  1. Special Thanks 特别感谢 This study could not have been done without the support of these professors at Nanjing Forestry University: Honghua Ruan Yulong Ding Lin Cao

  2. Distribution Patterns of Plant BranchesREU-China Program By: Dustin Mielke Summer 2012 St. Cloud state University

  3. Overview 概观 • My Research • Question • Process • Data • Analysis • My Experiences • My impressions of china • Places we visited • 我的研究 • 问题 • 过程 • 数据 • 分析 • 我的经验 • 我对中国的印象 • 我们参观的地方

  4. Question问题 • Do different species of trees follow the same mechanisms of growth in their branching patterns? • Evolution/Competition/Resource • 不同品种的树木,后续增长或权力的法律在其分支的模式相同的机制呢?

  5. Background Information • Mechanisms of growth will be measured with a statistical analysis by assessing the power law. • “Power laws can characterize ecological patterns that repeat themselves over broad scales, so they are considered as general features of complex systems” (Brown et al. 2002).

  6. Procedure Data was collected from trees at a tree plantation (Yellow sea forest garden) Trees were selected based on height and accessibility (Juvenile trees) The tree height was measured first Tree Branches were measured from top to bottom Bamboo tree data was measured in a previous experiment

  7. Yellow Sea Forest Garden

  8. Gingko, Willow, Bamboo

  9. How I made my graphs • Branch length (X-axis) • log • Frequency (Y-axis) • How many per specified length • -log • 分支长度 (X-axis) • 对数 • 频率 (Y-axis) • 多少,每指定的长度 • 负对数

  10. Graphs

  11. Graphs

  12. Graphs

  13. Analysis 分析 • My data shows that some individuals within the same species do not directly follow the same power law. • 我的数据显示,即使在同一物种内个体不遵循相同的功法。

  14. Interpretation 解释 Ideas 思想 初步设想 细弱枝 竹子的生长方法 物种变异内 • Initial assumptions • Skinny and long branches • Bamboo growth method • Variance within species

  15. My Group’s Trip • University Forest Farm • Yellow Sea Forest Garden, Dongtai • Urban Forest Park, Changshu • Yixing

  16. Bamboo Forest • I have always wanted to walk through a bamboo forest. • 我一直想穿过竹林。

  18. Impressions印象 • Same but different • Polite people • Bargaining system • Traffic • Emotions and Expressions • Landscaping • 相同,但不同 • 有礼貌的人 • 谈判制度 • 交通 • 情绪和表达 • 美化

  19. Acknowledgements • Dr. Xiongwen Chen • Master Student Emily Summers

  20. Thank You!谢谢! A Sound soul dwells within a sound mind and a sound body. 健全的灵魂 住在一个健全的头脑 健全的身体。
